Workers’ Party’s Chen Jiaxi Bernard suggested for PM Lee to take a leave of absence and assign an independent committee to look into the Lee family allegations. What do you think?
“This is not just a family feud.
This is not about how much Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang has/ has not contributed to Singapore
This is about what Lee Hsien Loong had allegedly done. And he has to be accountable to our institutions, as well as the very people who have given him the mandate to govern.
And like what the Financial Times have asserted, this threatens to engulf and undermine Singapore’s founding creed(s). Our institutions have to be above any individual. We need an independent inquiry. Prime Minister Lee, if you really mean what you say and represents all that you said your party represents, please take a leave of absence and appoint an independent committee to look into the allegations.
It is now more than urgent that Parliament convenes and appoint an independent ombudsman. More than ever, moving forward we need an independent parliamentary ombudsman.”
